RSNA to build a COVID-19 image repository

By staff writers

March 31, 2020 -- The RSNA plans to build a COVID-19 imaging data repository, adding to its body of research and education resources for the disease.

The COVID-19 Imaging Data Repository will be an open resource that consists of images and data from institutions, practices, and societies around the world, the RSNA said. An image hosting, annotation, and analysis framework will allow users to track the disease's epidemiological trends and generate new artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to help detect it, differentiate it from other pneumonias, and plan treatment.

The data repository will be developed in collaboration with the European Imaging COVID-19 AI initiative, which is supported by the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics.

The society is requesting that COVID-19 imaging data be submitted via a survey by April 15.
